The schools in Europe are not using films and audiovisual material to the full

The schools in Europe are not using films and audiovisual material to the full | Educommunication | Scoop.it

"The main findings of the study:

In the schools: film literacy is not recognised as a subject, and most often film serves as an illustration of other subjects. The teaching of film literacy is often dependent on the initiative of individual teachers, who also provide the material to be shown on DVD.In the film industry: licencing of films to be shown in schools is not a priority for the industry, although very good licencing schemes exist in some Member States.In copyright law: EU Member States have implemented the exception for illustration in very different ways and there is a lot of legal uncertainty on the conditions in which films can be used in the context of teaching."

This is Europe's plan to compete with US internet dominance

Perhaps the best way to understand the EU's plan to create a so-called digital single market in Europe is to think about video streaming. Americans understandably take it for granted that if they’re from, say, California and go on holiday in New York, then their Netflix subscription will work just fine when they reach their hotel. But if someone from the UK goes on holiday in Portugal (less than half the distance between Cali and NYC), they'll find themselves locked out of their account, all thanks to the patchwork of European copyright laws, which require Netflix to negotiate rights for its shows one country at a time. This is the sort of problem that EU politicians want to fix.

Schools in Finland will no longer teach 'subjects' | Teaching by Topic

Schools in Finland will no longer teach 'subjects' | Teaching by Topic | Educommunication | Scoop.it

For years, Finland has been the by-word for a successful education system, perched at the top of international league tables for literacy and numeracy.

.

Pasi Silander, the city’s development manager, explained: “What we need now is a different kind of education to prepare people for working life.

.

“Young people use quite advanced computers. In the past the banks had lots of  bank clerks totting up figures but now that has totally changed.

.

“We therefore have to make the changes in education that are necessary for industry and modern society.”

.

Subject-specific lessons – an hour of history in the morning, an hour of geography in the afternoon – are already being phased out for 16-year-olds in the city’s upper schools. They are being replaced by what the Finns call “phenomenon” teaching – or teaching by topic. For instance, a teenager studying a vocational course might take “cafeteria services” lessons, which would include elements of maths, languages (to help serve foreign customers), writing skills and communication skills.

.

More academic pupils would be taught cross-subject topics such as the European Union - which would merge elements of economics, history (of the countries involved), languages and geography.

This is what school librarians have been doing forever!

The world around us is not labelled or divided in categories, then why is academic content? Can we not relate topics and elaborate meaning on the basis of relationships and intertwined data?

I wonder if this would work in the U.S.? Also, in Finland, students do not take standardized tests until the end of high school (Zhao, 2012, p. 111), so thankfully, perhaps the drill and kill process is diminished.
